The infinite monkey cage
Hardcore History for sure.
Love The West Wing Weekly.
Also Autoblog and Motor Week for car stuff. Motor Trend Radio is kitschy but fun, and not new car centric.
Windows Weekly for tech stuff. A bunch of CBC podcasts like Spark and the AMAZING Under the Influence which is an in depth look at advertising and has fascinating stories and research.
By the way, if you are ok downloading podcasts, I really recommend Pocket Casts on all platforms. I love being able to essentially set up an up next playlist before I go on a long trip.
I'm kind of a fan of horror, some horror podcasts I've found that I like:
Lore - fantastic factual-based podcast about the gruesome and creepy history from various cultures and places
Knifepoint Horror - a series (probably 15 or so) of first person horror narratives, probably the creepiest "podcast" I've found, unfortunately not being produced anymore
NoSleep Podcast - a podcast based on the /r/nosleep subreddit, there some really bad stories, a lot of mediocre to ok stories and a sprinkling of fantastic ones ("The Whistlers" is phenomenal)
Black Tapes Podcast - less horror and more mystery, unfortunately the story starts to drag on in season 2
Tanis - similar to Black Tapes, starts interesting but gets tedious and wandering in season 2
Limetown - described as X-Files meets Serial, started fantastic, unfortunately they cashed in and decided to turn it into a TV series so there will be no season 2
Welcome to Night Vale - a weird small town radio talk show about all the strange events that happen in the fictional town of Night Vale, it's more absurdist than horror, but it has a strong David Lynch vibe
Alice Isn't Dead - a trucker believes her wife isn't actually dead and goes on a hunt to find her, by the same people that made Welcome to Night Vale so it's also very David Lynchian and surreal
The trend following trading podcast of Michael Covel sometimes has interesting guests:
I also like audiobooks on long trips.
Here are some free classics:
https://librivox.org/ - "Free public domain audiobooks"
https://sites.google.com/site/pdgene/ - "Free Adventure Stories on Audio Books"
For those of you who like listening to motorcycle shows on the radio..every Tuesday night at 6pm (Ohio time) there's a motorcycle show live on the radio called the 2 Wheel Power Hour. Plenty of action from a group of hosts called the Cast of Characters. From a "Where are they now" to off road riding and competition, to Road Racing and Touring n' Travel it's got it all. I listen on my iheart radio app at www.570wkbn.com
If u miss the show they podcast everything at www.570wkbn.com then go over to podcast click on and a drop down shows the 2 Wheel Power Hour click on that and it takes you to their podcasts. Seems like they go back to 2000!
Anyways something to do when the motorcycle is parked.
Not motorcyle related, but the Jocko podcast 92: Pushing the Envelope. Overcome and Adapt. Ultra-Winning Mindset of Marine Corps Combat Engineer, Rob Jones was fantastic.
Jocko is Jocko Wilink Navy SEAL retired. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jocko_Willink)
Just added two to the podcast list:
99% Invisible - excellent podcast about architecture and design, it delves into answering the questions that nobody ever bothered to ask. Did you ever wanna know why inflatable waving arm men are fixtures on used car lots?
S-Town - starts out as an investigation into a rumor of a murder, but very quickly turns into a story about the fascinatingly quixotic life of a man stuck in a backwoods town. it's only 7 episodes, but it surpasses Serial in storytelling.
The Smoking Tire isn't motorcycling, but it's all about cars from some enthusiasts who are kind of a new wave of auto journalism. Mixture of car discussion, amateur and semi-pro racing stories/interviews/news, industry info, etc. But it''s kind of a hang-out format so they throw in some general stories which are usually interesting.
I have to put my two cents worth in for the Two Enthusiasts Podcast. Once you get past their sophomoric bro humour, both of these guys really know their stuff and stay right up to date on the industry, bikes and racing. I never miss it now.
My top three cycle ones.
I'm an Econ/finance geek, and if you lean that way I suggest:
Adventures in Finance
Resurrecting this dead thread just to say thanks to the folks who recommended Dan Carlin. Mind = blown.
Another few I'd recommend:
Radiolab - part science, part philosophy, part humanity, it delves into all sorts of various topics. The earlier stuff is the best
More Perfect - from the guys at Radiolab, it's a spinoff which examines the Supreme Court and pivotal cases and the affect it has on our culture and politics
